Llanidloes restaurant responds to customer demand by opening at weekends

A popular, award-winning relaxed fine dining restaurant with rooms in a historic Mid Wales market town will be opening at weekends from Saturday, September 9 in response to customer demand.

Chartists 1770 at The Trewythen in Llanidloes, which has two AA rosettes and a four star Visit Wales grading, will now be open seven days a week. The restaurant is renowned for its fine cuisine using the best and freshest Welsh produce.

On Saturday evenings, from 6pm to 8.30pm, diners will be able to enjoy executive chef Jamie Tully and his team’s special three course à la carte menu in the restaurant.

At lunch times, from 12pm to 3pm, diners can choose from the à la carte menu or the light bites bar menu. Traditional afternoon teas, featuring home-baked cakes and pastries, are also served between 2.30pm and 5.30pm from Monday to Saturday.

On Sunday lunchtime, diners can choose from Chartists 1770’s three course à la carte menu as well as a traditional roast that will change each week. To avoid disappointment, diners can book in advance at https://www.trewythenhotel.wales/book-a-room/ .

The restaurant is now also taking bookings for Christmas parties.

Chartists 1770 buys its quality, local meat from Williams Family Butchers, located across the street in Llanidloes and sources seasonal ingredients as close to the town as possible.

“We are responding to customer demand by opening the restaurant at weekends when local people and visitors to the Llanidloes area are looking for a quality dining experience,” said executive chef Jamie Tully.

“We are looking forward to welcoming existing and new customers and we would particularly like to hear from clubs and groups who are visiting the region this autumn and winter.

“As a business we need to adapt to the changing hospitality market by providing a quality service to the people of Llanidloes and surrounding area. It’s a great time of the year to pay us a visit because the locally sourced Welsh Beef and Welsh Lamb are top quality and the season for hedgerow fruit foraging is in full swing.”

The restaurant also runs a steak night every Thursday, with the offering changing every week in terms of the steak cut and cooking style.

Chartists 1770 at The Trewythen has a proud record of training chefs and hospitality staff. It currently employs six apprentices in its kitchen and front of house teams, which is a priority for owner Cambrian Training Company, Wales’ leading apprenticeship provider to the hospitality industry.

Located in a Grade ll listed building, Chartists 1770 at The Trewythen has a restaurant that seats 30 and seven uniquely designed bedrooms. There are only three other Mid Wales restaurants with rooms – 17 across the whole of Wales – that have achieved a four or five star rating from Visit Wales.
